This bike is equiped with Front: 26 x 2.10" Ritchey Alfa Bite tires and Stainless steel spoke wheel while the rims are manufactured by Front: Ritchey Rock SCX, Rear: Ritchey OCR, 32-hole. Novara equiped this exact model with Shimano Deore LX V-Brake brakes, Shimano Deore LX levers braking system and Front: Shimano Alivio, Rear: Shimano R080, silent clutch hubs.
To guarantee the comfiest ride Novara used Chromoly, double-butted material for the frame. Wei Han ATB-52 high strength material is used on the handlebar of this Ponderosa to ensure the perfect handling while the stems are made of Tahoma Sonne IV.
For the smoothest biking experience Shimano Deore LX, 22/32/42 teeth is used on this bicycle linked to Shimano CN-IG51 chain that is easily replaceable as stated by Novara, the whole system is connected to a high reliability Shimano Deore LX RapidFire SL gear shift levers.
